What are (the Main) Causes of Attrition?

The theory is pretty good, but I am of the view that the underlying reason for a big percentage of people who move on is the boss.

  Hygiene: Rotating Job Responsibilities
Cecil Joel David
  In that sense yes, it's true, and I have been witness to this on a few occasions. Secondly, the suggestion given by Herzberg on the ways work can and should be managed is a great idea. A lot of organizations hardly ever rotate job responsibilities as most people feel that they are good at one thing and fear failing and hence don't try another thing or are not given new things to be done. But if the organization makes this part of its culture every one experiences the other persons work and a deeper and better understanding can develop within teams. Not that there are no other benefits, but a team involved and understanding each other is generally more effective. The respect for the other persons responsibility makes a big difference.
